In January 2016 I made a portrait of the New York based Polaroid Photographer Louis Mendes. Armed with his large Polaroid Camera and light-bulb flashgun he was looking for people to photograph just in front of the B&H store in NYC. After Mr. Medes photographed me I asked him if I could make a portrait in return. Two months later I had a closer look at the photo which I made using a Ricoh GR 28mm wide angle lens and to my astonishment it turned out pretty well, see for yourself.
